Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh knows they must stop Didier Drogba for any chance of beating Chelsea today.

Chamakh goes into a shootout with Drogba at Stamford Bridge.

"We obviously have to prevent him from causing us any problems and ensure that he gets as few attempts on goal as possible," Chamakh told the Mail on Sunday.

"Drogba has proven himself with Chelsea and for young Africans in France and in Africa he is the player who inspires young people to compete."

So he would be the ideal inspiration for Chamakh, then, being a young African who was born and grew up in France but represents Morocco, the country of his parents?

"No," answered the Arsenal striker directly, the eulogy coming to an abrupt end.

"For me it was Zidane."
